Fox Valley Women's Bible Study - Tobit and Esther

The Fox Valley Women’s Catholic Bible Study will study the books of Tobit and Esther via Zoom on Thursday mornings this winter. We are looking forward to learning about these very interesting and inspiring Old Testament ancestors of ours. Amazingly, small group sharing works well on Zoom and allows us to learn so much from one another.

The study will begin on Thursday, January 13, 2022, and go through April 21. We will not meet during spring break or on Holy Thursday. Participants will gather on Zoom beginning at 9:45 am. The meeting will start at 10 am with a large group reflection on the week’s lesson. We will then break into small groups to go over the questions. Each meeting will end around 11:30. At the opening meeting on January 13, John McGrath, former director of the Department of Educational Services for the Rockford Diocese, will provide an overview of these two books.

We will be using the Ignatius Catholic Bible Study commentary on Tobit, Judith and Esther. Each lesson will review the readings for the week and then ask thought provoking questions as to how they apply to our everyday lives.

If you are interested in joining the study or have questions, please email Kathy at before January 9, 2022, providing your preferred email address and phone number.
